Similar to the Scanner Alignment, ScanImage can align the stage (motors) to the laser scanners. This process is semi-automated and takes advantage of ScanImage's Motion Correction framework. After a successful calibration, ScanImage can perform measurements in stage units and can move the stage to defined positions.


Motor Alignment

A minimum of three calibration points is required for a successful alignment. More points can be added to generate a more precise alignment.


Stages can have play in their gears. During calibration it is advantageous to always finish a move from the same direction to minimize the effect of backlash.


The motor alignment is stored in the following properties
